California Set to Grant Medicaid to All Undocumented Immigrants 

HeadlineJun 28, 2022

California is set to become the first state to grant all undocumented immigrants access to state-subsidized health insurance. Governor Gavin Newsom announced Sunday that a budget deal had been struck with California’s Legislature including an expansion to the state’s Medicare that could expand coverage to hundreds of thousands of low-income, undocumented adults between the ages of 26 and 49. California already provided state Medicare to undocumented children, adults under the age of 26, and 50 years and older.
